Eagle Creek Park - Henslow's Sparrow

This morning, Eric and I headed over to Eagle Creek Park to do a little birding. We had hoped that more waterfowl had moved into the area but there were just the usual Mallards, shovelers, and teal. Overall we were having a pretty slow day until a Henslow's Sparrow suddenly popped into view near the skating pond! I was able to snap a couple of photos of it before if moved on. This species is quite unexpected in Indiana this late in the year!

Other highlights of the day were Purple Finch, Pine Siskin, and American Pipit.
